Moving between two homes

I am thinking of getting a Miniature Schnauzer and was wondering how well they would cope with moving between two homes. For example, between a primary home during the week and a second home during the weekend or between one's own flat for part of the week and one's partner's flat for the rest of the week. Do you have any advice?

Schnauzers are sensitive dogs.
The main thing is that they like to be with people most of the time.
If you are going to be with your dog a lot, it should be fine, provided you give your dog time to settle in for at least a couple of weeks in one place at the beginning.
If the dog will be on his or her own when you are out at work, i would advice against it, as it would be one more stressor for a people-loving sensitive dog, which would make him or her unhappy.
Schnauzers love security.
If you are at home, and decide to do it, get your dog used to travelling in a car right away.
Best wishes,
Linda
